Delusional Democrats

In this clip, Dean says Trump is “incapable of governing” and “erratic”? Pfft. More like “systematically fulfilling his campaign promises to repair the economy, get Americans back to work, and defend our borders.”

Surprisingly (given this is MSNBC), Turley throws cold water on the idea that the Hillary-deprived can get Trump out via the 25th amendment.  I keep wondering if the yahoos yelling for impeachment really think that Hillary would replace him. Duh!

The Constitution clearly lays out that, if an incumbent President becomes incapacitated, dies, resigns or is removed from office, the Vice President takes over. We’ve had that happen a handful of times in our history, but we’ve never had to move down the succession list.

However, if Trump were removed and Vice President Pence became unable to serve before a new VP had been appointed:

  1. Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, would take over.
  2. After that, it would go to Orrin Hatch, President pro tempore of the Senate, another Republican.
  3. After that, it would go to Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, another Republican.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES would the person who LOST THE ELECTION become POTUS.

The Object of War

The object of war is to kill people and break things.
Barack Obama was no more qualified to lead fighting men than I would be to be in a Miss America pageant. He hated the troops, as most democrats do. Personal hubris and an overinflated ego would not permit him to listen to the military people who have actually faced live fire. He thought he was the smartest person in any room he walked into. Turning our military into a social justice experiment cost many good people their lives. When soldiers were prosecuted for doing their jobs it makes them hesitate before pulling a trigger. That can get them killed, just the same as the policemen Obama also despised.
Others can confirm more positively than I how grateful our forces were when Trump was elected. He was a business man and not a politician. He was also smart enough to listen to the generals he chose to lead. He wants to win. Afghanistan has become a mess, much like Iraq became after Obama announced he was running away, wasting billions of taxpayer dollars and thousands of lives, and handing the country over to the bloody bastards from ISIS, which he seemed to have much adoration for.
Trump went before the nation yesterday and made it perfectly clear what our goal was.

BRACE YOURSELF, THE PRESIDENT IS BACK FROM VACATION
Major Announcement Set for President Trump’s Campaign-Style Rally in Arizona

President Trump is set to hold a campaign-style rally in Phoenix on Tuesday, despite opposition from Democrat lawmakers in Arizona.
The President is set to make a major announcement during event at the Phoenix Convention Center.
Reports said, the President may pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, or endorse a new GOP candidate to unseat Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.
Up to this point, Flake and Senator John McCain have had a contentious relationship with the President.
This comes despite calls to postpone the rally from the Mayor of Phoenix last week.

Just to Let You Know

As some of you may be aware, your intrepid reporter has been battery-operated since 3/2013 when a pacemaker was installed to keep the ‘ol ticker ticking. Lately I’ve been suffering occasional bouts of intense pain, like electric shocks in my chest. After consulting with my cardiologist today it was decided I needed another angiogram to make sure there wasn’t a problem with the bypasses I had in 2005. It’s scheduled for Tuesday. If a stent is needed I’ll have to stay overnight. There is a possibility my Thanksgiving meal will come from the hospital cafeteria. It is what it is.

I’ve seen the Cubs win a World Series and a republican get elected president. There’s not much left to look forward to. When you spend most of your life abusing your body with cigarettes and junk food there’s a price to be paid. This is just another installment.

Trump Announces National Security TeamLt. Gen. Mike Flynn-NSA, Sen. Sessions as AG, Rep. Pompeo to Head CIA
Last night the Trump campaign announced Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn as National Security Advisor.
This morning Donald Trump announced two more members of his security team.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) was the first US senator to endorse Donald Trump for president last year.

Incoming CIA Director Has Reputation for Confronting Iran
Pompeo pick garners high praise from congressional sources, policy experts
IN CASE YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH POMPEO:
Pompeo, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, earned a reputation among his Republican colleagues for his aggressive investigations into Obama administration secrecy surrounding last year’s nuclear agreement with Iran, multiple sources confirmed.
Multiple investigations by the lawmaker unearthed documents showing that senior U.S. officials engaged in secret talks with Iran that led to the payment of nearly $2 billion to Tehran by the United States.

Dem lawmaker says Sessions would drag the country back to dark times
TRUMP MUST BE DOING A GOOD JOB… ALL THE DEMOCRATS ARE PISSED OFF
In a blistering statement about a fellow lawmaker, Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez seemed to use the Republican’s full name — Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III — in an attempt to invoke Confederacy imagery.
“If you have nostalgia for the days when blacks kept quiet, gays were in the closet, immigrants were invisible and women stayed in the kitchen, Sen. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is your man,” Gutierrez said.

Howard Dean Compares Trump Election to Kent State Shootings, Selma AL’s ‘Bloody Sunday’

THE LEADERSHIP OF THE DNC COMES DOWN TO EITHER A SCREAMING LUNATIC OR A JEW-HATING MUSLIM. SOME CHOICE.
Wednesday on SiriusXM radio’s Urban View channel with host Joe Madison, former Vermont Governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean compared the outrage of young protestors over President-elect Donald Trump’s victory to the Kent State shootings in 1970 when the Ohio National Guard killed four students or the Edmund Pettus Bridge, which was the site of Bloody Sunday in 1965, when policemen beat civil rights demonstrators.

NRCC Endorses Pelosi For Minority Leader
The group credited the California Democrat for squandering their majority — losing 63 seats to Republicans in 2010 — by promoting unpopular policies like Obamacare.
“Former Speaker Pelosi has also established herself as the world’s worst election prognosticator,” the NRCC wrote in its endorsement. “Since her relegation to the minority, Pelosi has repeatedly assured reporters, cycle after cycle, that a Democrat majority is right around the corner, only to be soundly defeated each time.”

Ryan Suggests House Will Defund Planned Parenthood– Cites Bill That Would’ve Done It For 1 Year
Ryan responded: “We’ve already shown what we believe with respect to funding Planned Parenthood. We put a bill on President Obama’s desk in reconciliation. Our position has not changed.”
Ryan was referring to the “Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, or H.R. 3762.
The House bill, was vetoed by President Barack Obama
“This afternoon’s vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life,” Pence said after the vote. “By banning federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions of Americans who believe their tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America.”

Obama Tears Up Drilling Permits to Stop Gigantic Energy Boom in Colorado
PRETTY SURE INTERIOR SECRETARY PALIN CAN FIX THAT
Jewell’s Bureau of Land Management claimed that the 25 “Mancos” energy drilling leases now being cancelled were just a non-performing portion of 65 leases on “lands managed by the White River National Forest” and “amount to less than ½ of 1 percent of the active leases on public lands in the state of Colorado.”
But the 25 properties were “non-performing” only because they have been tangled in red-tape since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, even though they were leased in 2005 during George W. Bush’s administration.
The BLM manages nearly 700 million acres of federal lands in the United States. Because of tight restrictions, the “onshore” oil and gas wells on BLM lands accounts for just 11 percent of the natural gas supply and five percent of the oil supply in the United States.

No Saudi Oil Says Trump; Saudi Arabia Fires Back
Imagine making the world’s largest oil exporter sweat it out That’s exactly what Donald Trump is doing.
Despite the U.S. shale oil boom, which has made it the third largest global crude oil producer, the country still relies heavily on Saudi crude imports. Saudi Arabia is the largest Middle Eastern oil supplier to the U.S. with an 11% market share and has also invested heavily in U.S. downstream assets (refineries) to help lock in that supply. Around 31% of all U.S. oil imports are from OPEC members, while Canadian oil imports have a 41% share.

Anti-Trump Protesters Release Personal Info of Electoral College Members
THEY’LL STOP AT NOTHING TO INTIMIDATE ELECTORS
A national anti-Donald Trump group called the #NotMyPresident Alliance distributed the personal information of dozens of Electoral College members to its supporters on Wednesday through a Google doc spreadsheet.
The Electoral College members targeted were those who represented states that voted Republican, BuzzFeed reported.

Pence Tells House GOP to Get Ready to Pass Sweeping Legislation
Vice President-elect Mike Pence told House Republicans in a closed-door meeting Thursday to be ready to move a lot of legislation next year, Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said.
“Donald Trump is a man of action and we’re counting on you ” Pence said, according to Brady. The California Republican said that Pence mentioned a tax overhaul and Obamacare, but didn’t get into specifics.
Pence, a former House member himself, returned to the U.S. Capitol Thursday to visit with House Republicans, and he plans to meet later with top Democratic leaders in the House and Senate.

“YOUR WHITENESS SCARES ME!” Leftist Mob Threatens Radio Host Vicki McKenna at UW Madison

Far left race protesters stood up and screamed, “Safety! Safety! Safety,” interrupting Shapiro’s address. The safe word apparently was an expression that the university is a safe space, where hate-filled rhetoric isn’t welcome….
…Campus police watched but did nothing to stop the interruptions. At one point, they looked on as the protesters stormed the stage and continued their chants. Shapiro was told by police that they were instructed not to stop the demonstrators, who made their intentions to disrupt clear on Facebook days before the speech.

Anti-Bullying Activist Arrested for Assaulting 74 Year-Old Trump Supporter
23 year-old Black Lives Matter activist Shacara McLaurin was charged with felony and misdemeanor assault after she attacked a 74 year-old Trump supporter at a protest outside of Trump Tower.

Oddsmakers Say Michelle Obama Is Democrats’ Best Bet For 2020
SHE PROBABLY ALREADY MISSES THE WORLD TOURS, THE GOURMET MEALS, AND THE 35 SERVANTS… POOR BABY
Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1.
By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

Obama won’t call off anti-Trump protesters
WHAT AN ASSHOLE
“I would not advise people who feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised over the course of the campaign, I would not advise them to be silent,” Obama said during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Obama said protests are just something Trump would have to get used to as the leader of the free world.

Cherry Picking in November

Still so much left to sift through. What a week it’s been. Here are some things that I thought you might enjoy.

Back to the future: Howard Dean to run for DNC chairman
howarddean
THE DEMOCRATS KEEP RECYCLING THEIR OLD LOSERS.
‘REJOICE FOR THE SCREAMER LIVETH’….(THAT’S CALLED A PLAY ON WORDS)
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who led the DNC from 2005 to 2009, said Thursday via Twitter that he wants the job back when current interim chief Donna Brazile leaves in spring.
“The dems need organization and focus on the young. Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again,” he tweeted.

‘Melania liked Mrs. O a lot’: First Lady’s tea with her successor is kept behind closed doors (despite warm public welcome Bushes gave the Obamas) and photo is only released after media pressure
Michelle Obama met her successor this afternoon, greeting Melania Trump at the White House when she arrived and hosting her for tea
Press were barred from covering the visit that coincided with their husbands’ 90-minute meeting in the Oval Office
The Trumps arrived at the White House via a private entrance on the south side of the building. They left the same way they came
A photo of the women chatting popped up online hours later, after the White House was pressured to release it
In 2008 President George W. Bush and his wife Laura eagerly greeted the Obamas on the South Lawn – and reporters were allowed to cover it
I’D BET MONEY THAT MELANIA WAS GRACIOUS AND FRIENDLY AND THE GHETTO TRASH WANTED TO CLAW HER EYES OUT
WHAT STRUCK ME WAS THAT ALL THESE DESIGNERS MADE CLOTHES FOR MOOCH IN SIZE XXXL;MELANIA COULD MAKE SACKCLOTH LOOK STUNNING

Chelsea Clinton being groomed to run for Congress
SHE’S EVERY BIT AS QUALIFIED AS HER MOTHER
GREEDY: CHECK
ARROGANT: CHECK
PATHETIC LIAR: CHECK
UGLY AS HELL: CHECK
LIVING OFF SLICK WILLY’S REPUTATION: CHECK
Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.
Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base
SHE COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF CARPETBAGGERS

Experts Question If Clinton Foundation Will Survive

WHEN, OH WHEN WILL WE BE RID OF THIS NEST OF VERMIN?
The months ahead could determine what kind of future, if any, the Clinton Foundation can have as Congress and the new administration of President-elect Donald Trump take what is certain to be a tough look the ethical and legal issues that have swirled for years around the troubled charity

Memo to Trump: Exploit your win!
The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.
As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.

A partial agenda: First, he should ignore any importunings by President Obama to permit passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a lame-duck session – and let the trade deal sink by year’s end.

On Jan. 20, he should have vetted and ready to nominate to the high court a brilliant constitutionalist and strict constructionist.
With a new education secretary, he should announce White House intent to work for repeal of Common Core and announce the introduction of legislation to put federal resources behind the charter schools that have proven to be a godsend to inner-city black children.

Trump should announce a date soon for repeal and replacement of Obamacare and introduction of his new tax-and-trade legislation to bring back manufacturing and create American jobs.

Donald Trump said in his campaign that that this is America’s last chance. If we lose this one, he said, we lose the country.
The president-elect should ignore his more cautious counselors and act with the urgency of his declared beliefs.

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHERE DIAMOND AND SILK WERE:
CAN YOU IMAGINE THESE TWO AS PRESS SECRETARY?

Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies
Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.

Mitchell Shocked by Photo of Trump and Obama Together: ‘Good Lord’

“That is the moment, Donald Trump in the Oval Office with President Obama,” Mitchell said.

[CtH: Just a guess here that if this were 2008, she would have said, “President-Elect Obama in the Oval Office with George Bush.”]

She continued to report on the historic moment but let her emotions go and appeared shocked before ending her comments.

“But, good lord, that is an image a lot of people did not expect to see,” Mitchell said.

President-Elect Trump Saluted by Firefighters as He Leaves New York for Meeting with President Obama

President-Elect Donald Trump flew out of New York City’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning aboard his private jet Trump Force One. As the plane taxied for takeoff firefighters paid their respects to Trump with a traditional water cannon salute. Nearby, a group of firefighters and officials enthusiastically waved to Trump as the plane rolled by them.

FIRST RESPONDERS WILL BE TREATED A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY UNDER TRUMP
Trump calls slain cop’s widow to offer condolences

OF ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS SLAUGHTERED ON OBAMA’S WATCH HE SENT REPRESENTATIVES TO THE FUNERALS OF THE CRIMINALS BUT NEVER A COP… EVER.

President-elect Donald Trump called slain NYPD Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo’s widow Thursday morning and personally extended his “condolences” to her on the day that thousands of police officers paid tribute to the fallen Finest at his funeral.

“I’m very sorry I cannot be there with you today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time,” Trump told the grieving woman, according to a source.

“I want to express my condolences from me and my family.”

Tuozzolo, a married father of two, was shot and killed last week by 35-year-old ex-con Manuel Rosales. Tuozzolo had been responding to a report of a break-in.

UAW seeks to join Trump in effort to dismantle NAFTA
For years, the UAW has railed against NAFTA and other free trade agreements while Republicans have generally supported free trade deals. This year, Trump turned Republican politics upside down.

IF HE SIGNS THE XL PIPELINE DEAL, WHICH I THINK HE WILL, HE’LL PUT MORE THAN 30,000 SKILLED UNION TRADES MEN BACK TO WORK.  HE CAN MAKE GREAT INROADS INTO THE MONOLITH THAT IS THE UNION VOTE.

Clinton Couldn’t Win Over White Women
But they split along educational lines.
Throughout these many months, the Clinton team made it clear that they believed her historic candidacy had the potential to sway portions of the electorate, most especially women voters. They were counting in no small part on the support of sisterhood.

But Clinton’s stunning loss Tuesday night showed that issues of culture and class mattered more to many American women than their gender.

Lou Dobbs: If I Were Trump My Hands Would Have Been Clutching at Paul Ryan’s Throat

Donald Trump flew to Washington DC on Thursday to meet with President Obama, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Paul Ryan was a very vocal critic of Donald Trump for the past year. Ryan even pulled his endorsement of Donald Trump a month before the election. If Ryan was not on Hillary’s payroll he should have been.

Tonight Lou Dobbs remarked on Trump’s meeting with anti-Trump Speaker Paul Ryan.

Lou Dobbs: I’ve got to tell you I’m such a base and petty man that if Paul Ryan had done to me what he did to Donald Trump my hands would, without any power to resist it all, would be clutching at his throat. And, I have to say, Donald Trump was very presidential. He actually may be seeking to attain the level of saint here in what he has tolerated.

Mayors of NY and Los Angeles pledge to remain immigrant sanctuaries
Officials in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday said they hoped President-elect Donald Trump would not follow through on a campaign promise to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that shield people who are in the country illegally.

HE’LL CUT YOUR FUNDING THEN YOU CAN PAY TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE MONGRELS YOURSELVES.

Mom Throws Child Out In Street For Voting For Trump In School Election

Trump’s Transition Team Considers Sarah Palin For Possible Cabinet Spot
WHAT STANDS OUT IS THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE A FAR DEEPER POOL OF TALENT TO PICK FROM BECAUSE MORE OF THEM HAVE REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE ACTUALLY WORKING JOBS BESIDES GETTING ELECTED AND RE-ELECTED.

The Trump campaign is floating the idea of tapping the former Alaskan governor as Trump’s interior secretary. Palin has made no secret about her interest in holding a position in a Trump administration.

“If I were head of that, I’d get rid of it,” Palin said in an interview in September, referring to the Department of Energy. She said abolishing the department would give states greater control of energy policy within their borders.

[CtH: I’d love to see her heading up Energy.  She did wonderful things for the industry in Alaska and really knows her business.]

Canadian Militia Vows To Protect Borders From Illegal Americans

“This ain’t no Mexico border. Illegals will face snow and deadly cold temperatures, notwithstanding dangerous predator attacks from bears, cougars and wolves. If you’re an American crossing the border illegally, your chances of survival are pretty slim ”  – John C. McCaullagh, Militia leader

“Killing illegal citizens is a crime in Canada and we don’t openly encourage violence within our organization, but we can’t prevent members from shooting a few rounds at them just to scare them away. If you accidentally get hit in the knee or in the leg, without medical assistance, you’re a dead man within 2 or 3 days” he warns. “Better alive in the US than dead in Canada. It just ain’t worth the gamble,” he adds.

Top Clinton Adviser: She Didn’t ‘Contemplate Losing’ the White House
A top campaign adviser to Hillary Clinton said the former Democratic nominee “really didn’t contemplate losing” the presidential election to her opponent Donald Trump.  The unnamed adviser told People magazine on Wednesday that campaign staff were unsure of what Clinton would do next.

NY Times Crank: “America Elected a Bigot” – “I Do Not Respect the President-Elect”

New York Times columnist Charles Blow went off on a racist tirade against Donald Trump — who was never accused of being racist until he ran for president as a Republican.

Trump is already working to erase Obama’s legacy from history
HOW MUCH HE CAN OR WILL ACCOMPLISH REMAINS TO BE SEEN

President-elect Donald Trump was surprisingly gracious as he met President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Thursday but make no mistake: He is already working to erase major parts of Obama’s legacy from the history books.

Trump will be able to change some of Obama’s policies with a quick stroke of the pen. Others will be much more difficult, requiring justification to pass legal hurdles or buy-in from lawmakers on Capitol Hill or foreign leaders.

[CtH: I’m very encouraged by Trump’s behavior here. It points to what I’ve been hoping — i.e., that he is capable of growing into the job, something Obama The Petty never did.]

Life For Our Veterans (And Our Military) Could Be Much Different Soon
I POSTED THIS THIS MORNING. SOMEBODY MUST BE READING OUR LITTLE BLOG.

On both fronts, thankfully, I believe a new era dawns. On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump made both rebuilding our military and fixing the VA two of his signature issues.

President-elect Trump is poised to do the same. President-elect Trump has pledged to get rid of the disastrous defense sequester, invest in long-overdue future military technologies, grow the ranks and numbers of ships and aircraft, and repeal stifling rules of engagement that handcuff our troops.

In just a few years, the posture of our military could look much different—ensuring America both deters aggression and can swiftly defeat enemies.

[CtH: I hope this signals better working conditions for my kids.]

Franken: Americans Should Blame Republicans for Rising Obamacare Premiums

ALAS, THERE’S ALWAYS A SKUNK TO STINK THINGS UP

“The people they should be mad at, really, are Republican officeholders who refused to do anything other than vote to repeal the [Affordable Care Act],” he said. On September 30, Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman announced that health insurance rates will increase from 50 percent to 67 percent in 2017.

[CtH: Typical Democrat who can’t admit he was wrong, ever.  They assured us that THEIR “AFFORDABLE Care Act” was going to lower premiums.]

Concerns grow of press kept at bay during Donald Trump presidency
9_142016_160318-pol-trump-me8201_s878x627
I WOULDN’T BLAME HIM A BIT. AND I’D NEVER DO TAPED INTERVIEWS, GIVEN THE MEDIA’S PENCHANT FOR ‘CREATIVE EDITING.’

[CtH: Second that!]

President-elect Donald Trump never hid his contempt for the news media during the campaign and has continued to keep the press at bay after winning the election, raising concerns he will end the tradition of allowing a pool of reporters to cover his every move in public.

Mr. Trump, who at campaign rallies regularly denounced the news media as “the most dishonest people you’ll ever meet,” has support for breaking the tradition and keeping the public in the dark about his daily whereabouts.

“I don’t think Trump needs the press pool,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican who is a top Trump ally on Capitol Hill. “He didn’t need it when he ran and he doesn’t need it as president of the United States.”

“If I had just won the election after everyone said I’d lose and rooted for my opponent, why would I give anyone the time of day,” said Mr. Hunter.

GOP To Use Previously Unheard Of Tactic To Slam Dunk Trump Agenda
WE’VE BEEN WAITING DECADES FOR THE REPUBLICANS TO GROW A PAIR AND START DISHING OUT SOME OF WHAT THEY’VE HAD TO TAKE FROM SCARY HARRY AND HIS MERRY BAND OF CUTTHROATS.

The key is “reconciliation,” the part of the congressional budget process that allows highly controversial policies to be considered in the Senate without any possibility of them being filibustered.

But reconciliation by itself isn’t the unprecedented procedure; it’s the novel way the leadership plans to use reconciliation: For the first time in the 4-plus decades’ history of the congressional budget process, reconciliation may occur twice in the same year.

Harry Reid Dismisses Donald Trump: ‘A Sexual Predator Who Lost the Popular Vote’

I’M GOING TO MISS THIS SORRY ASS LIKE AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid broke his silence Friday on Donald Trump’s victory, denouncing Trump as a “sexual predator” who “lost the popular vote” and “emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America”—and who is now solely responsible for healing the country’s gaping political wounds.

In a fiery statement released three days after the election, Reid, who is retiring, holds Trump accountable for his comments on the campaign trail that inspired “fear” in women, Hispanics and African-Americans in the U.S.

[CtH: Well, I guess he’d know all about sexual predators in the Oval Office, now wouldn’t he?]

Too Tired Tuesday

The lady who works at the store where I get my coffee every morning asked me today why Trump is telling people that the election is rigged. I told her because it was the truth. Everybody knows it, nobody can/will do anything about it.

Elections Expert: “We Now Have 4 Million Ineligible and Dead Voters on American Voter Rolls”
Adams, who was the Voting Section Attorney at the US Department of Justice, filed six suits in the past year against Philadelphia and Broward County, Florida where the voter rolls are corrupted.
Adams said he had one case in Texas where the person died in 1944.
Far left groups continually sue to keep the voter rolls the way they are. The Obama administration has no desire to clean up these voter rolls.
J. Christian Adams: “Dead people are voting and it’s something this administration does not want to do anything about. They must like it. They must like who they are voting for… Now we have four million, four million Steve, ineligible and dead voters on American voter rolls according to the Pew Charitable Trust.”

Clinton Campaign Strategy for Decades: ‘ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK’
Adviser from 1992 campaign laid out ‘relentless,’ ‘coordinated’ oppo strategy
The 1992 Clinton presidential campaign was not about promoting Bill Clinton’s accomplishments or vision but about tarnishing President George H.W. Bush, according to a close aide of the campaign.
A memo written by Derek Shearer to Bill, Hillary Clinton, and senior campaign aides in April 1992 laid out the “ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK” strategy.

ONCE THEY GET 40-50 MILLION ILLEGALS HERE, ALL VOTING DEMOCRAT THEY’LL NEVER LOSE ANOTHER ELECTION
The Department of Homeland Security admitted Monday that a record 70,297 people in Central American “family units” arrived during the fiscal 2016 migration, from Oct. 1, 2015 to Sept. 3o, 2016, according to the Department of Homeland Security. In addition, another 46,893 young men, youths and boys — dubbed “unaccompanied alien children” or “UACs” — from Central America presented themselves at the border to apply for asylum under Obama’s migration process.
So far, very few of Obama’s Central American migrants have been sent home, despite public opinion. That’s partly because the GOP-led Congress has not used its spending power to limit Obama’s welcome for the migrants. In fact, top GOP leaders welcome the arrival of more foreign workers to work in favored low-wage industries.

Police on lookout for vandals who spray-painted cars outside Trump rally in Bangor
More than 20 cars parked between the Bangor Raceway and Buck Street were hit with lines of white paint. Attendees said the owners of some of the cars appeared to drive off without noticing the vandalism.

Hillary Supporters Smash “Trump Car” in Black Neighborhood
YouTuber Joey Salads held a social experiment recently. He parked a car with Trump stickers in a “black neighborhood” to see what happens.
It took 30 minutes before the Democrats started looting the car and beating out the windows. Bystanders chanted, “F*ck Trump!”

Seattle Teachers Enforce Black Lives Matter Indoctrination
A Maoist-style reeducation fest approaches in Seattle schools.
Thousands of taxpayer-supported Seattle teachers are planning to don Black Lives Matter t-shirts this week in public schools and force-feed left-wing propaganda to their students about race in an effort to draw attention to the systemic racism they imagine is embedded in the public education regime.
The Black Lives Matter cult is animated by a hatred of normal American values. Its members idolize convicted, unrepentant black militants and cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal and have declared “war” on law enforcement. Its members openly call for police officers to be assassinated.

Millennials Pretty Cool With Socialism
Study finds Americans born after Cold War don’t understand ‘dark history’ of collectivism
Nearly half—45 percent—of those aged between 16 and 20 years old said they would vote for a socialist, while one in five responded they would vote for a communist, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found.

Mika Scolds MSNBC Guest For Joking About Clintons’ Pay-For-Play — ‘That’s Sick!

IT’S EASY TO MAKE JOKES WHEN YOU KNOW THE FIX IS IN AND YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING
“Sam, $1 million as a birthday gift. I know you’ve got a lot of friends — a lot of your rich friends from Dartmouth — that comment and give you $1 million for your birthday presents,” Brzezinski’s co-host Joe Scarborough posed to Stein.
“I call the $1 million gift club the second tier friends,” the Huffington Post politics editor joked in response. “The first tier is $5 million.”
“What? Seriously?” Brzezinski incredulously stated as the rest of the panel laughed. “That’s sick!”

Riding in Cars With Huma: Hillary Clinton Snubbed Diplomats to Stay Near Aide
One area of particular concern was Hillary’s refusal to follow “standard security and diplomatic” protocol by riding with local U.S. ambassadors in an armored limousine to diplomatic events abroad. It was standard procedure for the secretary of state and the ambassador to arrive together at these events, but Hillary refused, and insisted on riding with her top aide Huma Abedin.

Howard Dean Was Really Not Ready for This MSNBC Interview

I DO NOT INTEND TO LISTEN TO THIS MORON FOR 8 MORE YEARS
Thomas Roberts asked Dean to comment on this new release and explain how Clinton’s presidential campaign was going to get in front of the story.
Dean was confused from the outset, seeming to think it was related to the WikiLeaks release of John Podesta’s messages.
“This sounds like nothing. Who’s saying this?” Dean said. “This is nothing. The last couple of batches e-mails have revealed exactly nothing now. Who is pushing this notion?”

Hillary’s big night on Broadway: Chelsea and Bill join dozens of Hollywood A-listers led by Julia Roberts for $10,000-a-head New York fundraising show
The event, called ‘Stronger Together: Broadway for Hillary’, was held in New York City on Monday
Guests paid up to $10,000 to watch the spectacle in person at the St James Theatre
But those at home can enjoyed the spectacle live as it was streamed on Clinton’s social media pages
The Democratic nominee did not attend, but her daughter Chelsea and Bill Clinton were at the concert

Staying: ‘Joe, Jill, I, Michelle will all continue to be involved’
President Obama has just 94 more days on the job, but unlike all of his predecessors, he seems to have no plan to leave.
I’m looking forward to not only laying the groundwork for the next administration to pick up the baton and run with it, but I know Joe and Jill and I and Michelle will all continue to be involved after we’ve left this office in making sure that this works,” he added.
WHAT THE HELL DOES MICHELLE HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING? ALL SHE DOES IS SUCK UP ALL THE GOODIES

Leaked Email: Top Clinton Aide Called Chelsea a Backstabber
A REAL CHIP OFF THE LYING, THIEVING, OBNOXIOUS BLOCK
She sends me one of these types of emails every few days/week. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far. A kiss on the cheek while she is sticking a knife in the back, and front,” he wrote.
This is not the first time that Band was found to be highly critical of Chelsea Clinton within the WikiLeaks email dumps.
In an earlier release, Band called Chelsea a “spoiled brat” after she had tried meddling in his consulting firm, Teneo Holdings, the New York Post reported.

James O’Keefe Reveals DNC and Hillary Campaign “Bird Dogging” to Incite Violence at TRUMP Rallies – PURE EVIL
Investigative journalist James O’Keefe released video today of Democratic officials admitting they used “bird dogging” to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies.
The tactic worked well this year against Donald Trump.
GOP elites, #NeverTrumpers and the corrupt media fell for it every time.
The goal of “bird-dogging”: to create a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value.

Dennis Kucinich: DOJ and FBI Decided ‘No Matter What’ Clinton Wouldn’t Be Held Accountable, ‘Politicization of the Justice System’

The Justice Department and the FBI are inevitably a part of the executive branch of government, and the executive branch of government made an early determination that no matter what came up, that there was no way that Hillary Clinton was going to have to be accountable under law to — for anything dealing with the mishandling of classified information.”

PREDICTABLE AS A SUNRISE

Another senseless act of domestic terrorism. Another brutal massacre of helpless unarmed citizens. Another political opportunity for socialists to blather about blaming a thing with no mind, no conscience, no will of its own. To a man, they rushed in front of cameras before any facts were known and blamed guns.
OUR VERY OWN GRUNT WAS SPOT ON:
Barack Pretty Sure These Fine, Religious Young People Were Overpowered by Their Own Evil Guns

Guns “Still on the Loose.” Must Be Stopped “Before They Kill Again.”

This poor guy was completely innocent. A “tragedy,” of course.

THIS WAS THE COVER ALREADY PRINTED YESTERDAY FOR PUBLISHING TODAY:

SAME CITY, DIFFERENT AGENDA

Compare and Contrast How The Candidates Responded to San Bernardino Shooting

Republicans Attacked for Offering Thoughts and Prayers for San Bernardino Victims

Republicans–presidential candidates, senators, congressmen and other GOP officials–offered thoughts and prayers for the victims of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday. In response they were attacked online by liberals, including Democratic Party U.S. Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut.

Your “thoughts” should be about steps to take to stop this carnage. Your “prayers” should be for forgiveness if you do nothing – again.

Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump issued a statement that offered support to law enforcement.
California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated!”

TED CRUZ:
Our prayers are with the victims, their families, and the first responders in San Bernardino who willingly go into harm’s way to save others.

Chris Christie:
Praying for all those victimized by the shootings in San Bernardino, California today.

THEN THERE’S THE COMPASSIONATE LEFT
Huffington Post Associate Politics Editor Igor Bobic:
a thought: offer prayers for victims and recognize more needs to be done to address gun violence

Daily Kos’ Markos Moulitsas:
At least 14 dead and 14 injured. But lucky for them, the GOP is offering up loads of thoughts and prayers!

The Guardian’s Jill Filipovic went after Ben Carson:
If only there were something politicians could offer, other than thoughts and prayers, to stop gun violence.

Cable TV writer/producer/director Miles Kahn:
My thoughts and prayers are with the GOP candidates, who must now strategize how to continue to suck up to the NRA with a straight face.

Think Progress Director of Video and Contributing Editor Igor Volsky obsessively posted over two dozen tweets attacking and mocking the GOP and Republican congressmen, senators and presidential candidates for offering thoughts and prayers including this one and one going after Speaker Paul Ryan:
Excited for GOP proposal to fight ISIS with thoughts and prayers

Gene Weingarten, Washington Post:
Dear “thoughts and prayers” people: Please shut up and slink away. You are the problem, and everyone knows it.

An observation in conclusion:
Which represents a sane person with good values. Person A) “we offer thoughts & prayers”. Person B) “Screw your prayers!”

Howard Dean Group Fundraising Off CA Shootings—GOP ‘Standing With Terrorists’

Money-grubbing ghouls. How better could you describe Howard Dean’s group, Democracy for America? They can’t even wait for the blood to dry before exploiting the slaughter in San Bernardino for dollars.

This NewsBuster just received an email from DFA admitting “the tragic situation in San Bernardino is still going on.” And yet, because Republicans respect the Second Amendment, DFA accuses “Paul Ryan and the entire Republican party” of “aiding and abetting terrorists,” “standing with terrorists,” and being people who “enable terrorists.” Of course it’s all about that button at the bottom of the email: DONATE.

Remember “dissent is patriotic”? That only applied pre-Obama. It’s now inoperative. Unless you agree with the Second Amendment-ignoring liberals, you’re nothing but a terrorist-enabler.

VIDEO Shows Police Officer Telling Workers Who Are Being Evacuated, ‘I’ll Take a Bullet Before You Do, That’s For Damn Sure’

It was captured on video by one of the workers—

APPARENTLY THERE WERE BLACK LIVES MATTER GOONS PRESENT
People who were inside the Inland Regional Center during Wednesday’s attack put their lives in the hands of an officer who led them to safety, a video shows.

“If you’re not cool, I’m not walking them,” the officer shouts to an unseen colleague as the people stand anxiously waiting.

When satisfied the way is clear, the officer tells the people to keep their hands “where I can see them,” and head for a deputy, where they’ll turn left.

The people comply, showing their hands and remaining mostly silent

Howard Dean is a total jerk

Former DNC Chair Howard Dean says Republicans aren’t American. Silly me. I thought I had to be an American BEFORE I could register Republican. Do we really need to ask the question, “What would happen if a Republican had said this about Democrats?”

Yes, Virginia. Obamacare does include death panels

Well, duh. We all knew that. At least, those of us who were paying attention, as opposed to those who were drinking CØØL-AID.

Now it seems that prominent Democrat (former Vermont Governor, DNC Chairman) Howard Dean has published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal admitting Palin was right to oppose the Obamacare “Independent Payment Advisory Board.” The IPAB is exactly what Palin said.

IPAB: A panel of unelected, political appointees in D.C. with the power to decide who in America gets what health care treatment.

2013_07 Palin was right all along

Dean writes, “The IPAB is essentially a health-care rationing body. By setting doctor reimbursement rates for Medicare and determining which procedures and drugs will be covered and at what price, the IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.

There does have to be control of costs in our health-care system. However, rate setting — the essential mechanism of the IPAB — has a 40-year track record of failure. What ends up happening in these schemes (which many states including my home state of Vermont have implemented with virtually no long-term effect on costs) is that patients and physicians get aggravated because bureaucrats in either the private or public sector are making medical decisions without knowing the patients.”

The Right is delighted to see a prominent Dem like Dean making our case for us. Not that the Left cares. Obamacare never was about lowering health care costs or any of the other rainbow and unicorns crap they claimed it was about. It was, is and will continue to be about

  • increasing the power and wealth of elite Democrat politicians,
  • decreasing American freedoms with a top down control system, and
  • killing all those who are deemed unfit or inconvenient by those in power.

In short, it’s about destroying the FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY that have been the hallmarks of our Christian Constitutional Republic from its founding and replacing them with the HATE, DESPAIR and SELFISHNESS that are the hallmarks of the Atheistic Socialist Dictatorship the Left wants running America.
